Adventures in Wedding Planning

On Sunday, my sweet sisters threw me the sweetest, mermaid-themed bridal shower! Gah!!! I was surrounded by so many loved ones! It made my heart so happy! We missed the ones who couldn’t be there, but knew they were there in spirit! 

After the party was over, I just sat back and thought about how thankful I was for all of those amazing people in my life! Everyone made me feel so loved and they have no idea how much it means to me! This wedding planning thing is no joke, but being surrounded by such wonderful people makes it worth it! If the wedding day feels anything like the bridal shower did, I know it’s going to be a great day! 😉 

Thank you again to my sisters who set up this fun party! Thank you to EVERYONE who helped make this happen! It was so beautiful! I loved it all! 

See all of the hard work below!! 🙂 

P.S. Was anyone surprised that it was mermaid themed?! 😉

Abby was such a great help to me opening my presents! An old wives tale states that any ribbons broken during the bridal shower equals the amount of kids we’ll have in the future! Abby kept trying to break the ribbons! hahaha. mermaid themed bridal showerSuch a sweet handmade gift! mermaid themed bridal shower mermaid themed bridal shower mermaid themed bridal shower
